    Puts a smile on your face

    I love these books! The best way to describe this book is a collection of article length stories loosely tied together. This book really does read like scenes from Lisa and Francesca's life. You know the funny little observations, or the not so funny ones, that make up your day and your conversations with your friends. In a lot of ways, this book feels like a conversation with a friend. Every time that I picked this book up to read for just a few minutes, I would end up reading huge sections of the book because it was just so hard to put down. The majority of the stories in this book come from Lisa's point of view. Francesca is also well represented but just looking at numbers, Lisa authored more of the chapters. I love their sense of humor! Both of these ladies are just plain funny at times. I love that most of their funny stories remind me of the stories that I share with my friends and family. I didn't laugh out loud while reading this book but I did have a grin on my face quite often. I love how these two ladies really let us readers into their life in this book. Not everything in their life has been pleasant and they make mistakes. They own their mistakes and share their pain. Anytime the story was a bit more emotional, I could completely empathize with them. I like how they both shared their perspectives on similar stories. Their bond with each other is obviously very strong and it is a joy to see how much they are there for each other. I am always amazed by how much I am able to relate to these authors. I do relate to Lisa just a bit more but only because I have to think kind of hard to remember what it was like to be young and in the dating scene like Francesca. I really think that almost every adult woman will find something to relate to in this book. There are stories of growing up, dealing with family, getting older, dating, and finding your way each day. I would recommend this book to others. Lisa and Francesa do a fantastic job of telling quick stories that really pack a punch. They have written quite a few of these books together but they can each be read as a stand alone. This is a perfect book to curl up with when you want something light that feel like being with an old friend. I received an advance reader edition of this book from St. Martin's Press via NetGalley for the purpose of providing an honest review.

    Bloggy Diary Type Book

    I have read and enjoyed novels by Lisa Scottoline so when offered this collection of stories I thought I would give it a try. I did not realize that what the “stories” would be were actually more of a blog or diary of events in Lisa and her daughter’s lives. I guess I was expecting “stories” or more of a story than a diary/blog format. I skimmed parts of the book but did not read it cover to cover. There were some lighthearted moments, an attack, some thoughts and words of wisdom. But, this is not what I was expecting and perhaps not what I was in the mood to read today. Another reviewer said it would be a good book to read on the beach or when traveling in a plane…maybe it would be. For me…probably not, though. It was not a book I enjoyed BUT if you are looking for a book to take you into the lives of Lisa and her daughter then by all means pick it up and enjoy a peek into their lives. Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for the copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. 2-3 Stars

    A Fun Read!

    I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for my honest review. I have read and enjoyed a lot of Lisa Scottoline's books, however, I had never read a book by this great mother/daughter duo before. I really had a good time reading this book. It was written like short stories and I enjoyed the conversational style. I laughed a lot! I highly recommend this for an easy, light-hearted read.

    Fun collection

    This is a fun collection of vignettes told by a very talented mother daughter duo. Each author writes separate chapters with a humorous and/or poignant recollection of something that took place during the year this book was written. Reminiscent of Erma Bombeck, these ladies tales will make you smile. Each chapter can be read independently and is perfect for when you just have a few minutes to read.
